Second Presidential Debate Results: Clinton Won by Standing Strong

IATSE General Board Endorses Obama 2nd Term

Hillary Clinton, once again, won the second presidential debate with her calm leadership and solution-oriented policies.

Secretary Clinton proved she is the only candidate supporting Americans by talking about the issues that impact working people and discussing her detailed plans to improve the economy.

Donald Trump, lacking all substance, continued to rely on underhanded campaign tactics, doing nothing but furthering baseless lies about Secretary Clinton. He resorted to whitewashing his perpetual disrespect for women and his history of sexist comments. In fact, the only things he seems to offer the American voter are lies, as he was caught in 33 lies by fact checkers during the debate.

Secretary Clinton stood strong against Trump’s accusations and talked about an inclusive and positive future.

“I want to be the president for all Americans, regardless of your political beliefs, where you come from, what you look like, your religion,” she said Sunday night. “I want us to heal our country and bring it together because that’s…the best way for us to get the future that our children and our grandchildren deserve.”

Secretary Clinton’s victory was so pronounced, that within an hour of the end of the debate, a CNN poll of viewers found 57 percent of the respondents thought Clinton won, and a YouGov poll found, out of 812 registered voters, 47 percent thought Clinton won in comparison to only 42 percent for Trump.

It is clear to voters: Trump’s performance is that of schoolyard bully in which insults, not policy, are his focus. In contrast, Secretary Clinton spoke of her 30-year history supporting Americans on health care, tax reform and clean energy.

“I worked very hard and was very proud to be re-elected in New York by an even bigger margin than I had been elected the first time,” Secretary Clinton said during the second debate. “And as president, I will take that work, that bipartisan work, that finding common ground because you have to be able to get along with people to get things done in Washington.”

With the possibility of a Trump presidency, we cannot afford to stay at home on Election Day. Join other IATSE members in voting for Hillary Clinton, the candidate who will make us stronger together. #IATSEVOTES
